{Married} Lauren + Russell’s Vintage Fairytale Wedding at the Mountain Lakes House in Princeton, NJ | Princeton, Philadelphia, Main Line Wedding Photographer

Lauren and Russell’s wedding at the Mountain Lakes House in Princeton was simply perfect in every way. There were many moments that tugged on my heartstrings and brought tears to my eyes. So much love. So much support for these two beautiful people. The day started with the traditional “getting ready”. Lots of laughs being shared from tie tying tutorials to sisterly giggles. And then the first look with Dad. Oh my. I’m crying just thinking about that moment. It was so incredibly special. Then, when we headed out for Lauren and Russell’s first look, it started to shower! You would think they would be fretting but they were so prepared with their super fun clear bubble umbrellas. Another moment for the books. Following the first look, we did some exploring, found ourselves nestled in the woods. Is it me or does Lauren resemble a Disney princess and Russell is her knight-in-dapper-suit-and-tie?! I have been watching a ton of Disney movies lately with my kiddos, can you tell?! The ceremony was beautiful and their readings were probably the best I’ve ever heard! Giant Jenga and Cornhole were definite crowd pleasers during cocktail hour and reception. We had a lot of fun photographing that! And then, just when you think it can’t get any better, the Nomad Pizza truck arrives. Lauren and Russell are big-time pizza lovers so it was only appropriate for them to have a pizza truck at their wedding reception. Best. Decision. Ever. Their pizza is phenomenal and plus they drive around in an REO speedwagon….what?!?! After dinner, the dancing certainly took off. Boss Entertainment DJ’s knew how to bring the party. Overall, it was a fantastic day/night and I was thrilled to be a part of it all. Here are a good chunk of my favorites from their day. So hard to choose since there were so many awesome moments. Hope you enjoy!

{Married} Alexandra + Alexander’s Lakeside Wedding at the Mountain Lakes House in Princeton, NJ | Princeton, NJ and Philadelphia, PA Wedding Photographer

The Mountain Lakes House has quickly become my favorite venue to shoot a wedding at. I’ve been there several times now and each time I find more unique spots to shoot portraits. I love the laid-back vibe you get when you’re there. The wedding decor is always lovely and being lakeside, well, you just can’t beat that! When I first spoke with Alexandra about shooting her wedding, we talked in depth about photos, my style and approach, etc. We knew we were a great fit for each other :) And, of course, I was thrilled to be at MLH again to shoot their wedding. We started the day with a very smooth flowing morning of getting ready. Then headed over to their first look by the lake, followed by portraits on the grounds…they look like they are on cloud 9, seriously! Every time I look at these pictures, I just get lost in the beauty of their love for each other. The ceremony and reception were lovely and the day couldn’t have been more perfect. So many thoughtful, handmade details from family members added that intimate touch to their special day. Below are some of my favorite photos from Alex and Alex’s wedding day, I hope you enjoy them!
